I am a 40ish woman living with 1 husband, 5 children, 3 cats, a mother-in-law and 12 fish. I like to read, knit, crochet, and craft. Join me as I chronicle my busy life and my attempts to tame my chaos.
We spent the 4th of July cleaning out the garage. It doesn't look cleaned out but it is significantly better. Mr. T broke down our old sofa and threw much of it away after he saved the boards and metal tubes (it was a sleeper sofa). We filled our garbage can and recycling can and still have more to toss.
Eldest son, Big M (13 year old) took apart a broken lawn mower and saved the motor. He has dreams of making a go-kart - I have nightmares of the motor still sitting in my garage after he moves out. He decided to make something out of the old mower base and handles and a few other things we were recycling.
Big M's lawn stroller
He calls his creation a "lawn stroller". Little L loves to be pushed around the yard and neighborhood in the "lawn stroller". Big M also likes to ride in it down our small hill - I think he dreams it's a go-kart.
